2013: Britten's Noye's Fludde

Blackheath Halls performed Benjamin Britten's Children's Opera 'Noye's Fludde' on 23 and 24 February 2013. The production had a cast of over 60 local children and young people, 30 local adults and over 30 young instrumentalists in the orchestra.


'If only this sort of life enhancing experience was easy to fund! It is of such huge benefit to
every part of our community - accessible for all abilities, ages, races, etc etc etc. Is it clear that I thought it was fantastic?'


'I loved it soooooooooo much! Best Saturdays of my life!'


'It was great fun performing at BLACKHEATH HALLS! Something I will NEVER forget!'


'My daughter told me very distinctly that "I feel more confident about my singing now because of being in this show" which is huge personal and musical step forward for her.  Even before the performance days, she was already asking me repeatedly whether she could 'do it again next time please'.'

'She responded incredibly well to the supportive, friendly, inclusive yet hard-working approach to the production. She felt very immersed and part of something big and important.  She was rather bereft after the final performance. It was a great way for her to experience just how much work and organisation goes into any stage or musical piece.  The production elements, musical direction, design etc were a fantastic way for her to see what standards she might aspire to as she grows up.'
